Here's the write-up that I used for the conversion several years ago.
Successfully performed Murano halogen to HID conversion for : Nissan Articles
I cheated when I did it, and just soldered the diode between 1 leg of each relay, and never had a problem with it the 5 years that I drove it after the conversion.

Good Luck!

The photos no longer work on that write up so I'm unable to get a visual but I guess I need to get to that point and see what it looks like first. Which legs do I solder or connect the diode to?

Success! Thank you for that. I soldered the diode on the back of the circuit board between HL1 and HH2. I put heat shrink around the entire thing except for the small section on either end that I soldered to the terminals. Everything works, thanks to everyone who contributed to this conversion.



Oh pics of diode work:

I also did the OEM HID conversion. Had EU Xenon lamps which were basically plug an play, apart from the signal for the high beams. My electronics guy installed the diodes (1 pc for each side) for the high beams right in the cables. Seems to be safer then to play around with the electronics in the IPM module.

Can you ask your electronics guy how and where he installed diodes?

In the cables going for the HI and LO beam. It was a 10A 1000V diode

A high current switching diode, I see. Thanks for the info.

Supposedly anything above 10A and 50V will work!

Indeed. A 55W bulb draws about 4.5A. In this application, the current required is to keep the HID bulbs powered all the time in low and high beam. The only difference is that when high beam is triggered, small additional amount of current will be delivered to a solenoid to "flip" open a lens cover, thus creating a high beam effect by letting light shines above the cut offs. So a 10A 50V diode will work fine. :-)

Does anyone know if a headlight leveling sensor can be added for auto-leveling of the HIDs?
I know they do exist as EU MO regulatory need to have such an auto-leveling system. My current HID lamps are EU so they are equipped for a leveling sensors, but the question here is what other modifications and/or modules I would need.
